Cream Cheese Bacon Chicken Tacos are a fun and easy dinner recipe your whole family will love.
We have Hispanic food EVERY week. Without fail, we are having tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas or taquitos one day during the week and the kids love them. I’m so grateful for that because I love these recipes too, and they’re usually really easy to make.
Today, I wanted to share our favorite taquitos recipe – Cream Cheese and Chicken Taquitos.
What are TAQUITOS? A Mexican dish consisting of a small tortilla that is rolled around a filling of meat and cheese and then deep-fried.
They are very similar to the chicken tacos we make all the time, but they have cream cheese, salsa, and baby spinach mixed in with it too. Tacos are usually folded, and these taquitos (aka Flautas) are rolled. Since my husband LOVES cream cheese, I knew he’d love this recipe and it’s become a family favorite since!
HOW TO MAKE TAQUITOS
These have definitely become family favorites, and I love how easy they are to make.
OIL. Begin by heating 1/2 inch oil on medium heat in a frying pan.
MIX. While the oil is heating up, mix together cooked, shredded chicken, cream cheese, sour cream, salsa, co-jack cheese and spinach. Add salt and pepper to taste.
ROLL + FRY. Once the oil is hot enough, add a few tablespoons of the chicken/cream cheese mixture along the center of the corn tortilla and spread out. Roll up and set seam side down (using tongs) into the oil.
DRAIN OIL. Cook these until golden brown on both sides and continue doing this until the mixture is gone. Set on paper towel lined plate to drain the oil and serve warm.
